e-Reimbursement - Using error flags to identify errors in e-Reimbursement

When e-Reimbursement identifies an error with an expense item, it will flag that expense item and highlight the field in red. The red highlighted fields may be difficult for some users to see due to color-blindness, the use of a screen reader, etc. Affected users should instead use the error flags and required field icons to correct errors.

Identifying Required Information

When viewing the Expense Report Entry page in e-Reimbursement, note that fields which are required will be indicated with an asterisk. If one of these fields is blank and you attempt to save or submit the report, it will cause an error.

Errors in expense items

If an error is found in an expense item then a flag will appear beside the expense item. That flag will say "Missing or invalid information was found. Click this icon for further details," if you mouse over the flag image or if you are using a screen reader. An example of the flag is shown below:

Note the error flag which appears immediately to the left of the Expense Type dropdown field

Clicking on the flag will bring up the Expense Details for that expense item. At the top of the expense details page will appear a list of the fields which contain errors. An example is shown below:

Note that each error flag listed in expense details will include the name of the field which is incorrect
